How long have they been holding for?

If they are going to spit at the same time you can strip the fry from the mothers at around the same time, the fry won't kill each other because they won't develop the aggression until they are a few months old.

I wouldn't keep them in the same tank whilst holding especially a small tank. fry will be a snack to the other mother too.

I don't house holding moms together, even with the smaller species.

They can get pretty aggressive towards the end of the holding term when they are ready to release the fry.

Why not leave both in the main tank and remove them after 18 days and strip them into the 10G?
